No, for development you (usually) only need a single Mongrel or Webrick. That is unless you have unusual requirements.

When it comes to production what do I do here? Do I need a mongrel

each cluster run more than one application, so Apache/Pound can
redirect to the same place for all incoming requests?

You will need one cluster for each app. There is a Rails deployment group which will most likely give your much better responses to deployment questions.
